, it makes it hard to defend a few weeks later why the nsa programs have expanded. when you want allies on our side saying it is important that they are by our size, and then you have the president saying that the war on terror is over. apart from whatever isolationist streak i have in congress, blaming america first crowd, one of the main reasons we have a hard time maintaining support for programs like the nsa is because the president has undercut us, and mainly in a schizophrenic way. he should be out there on national tv, instead of talking about phony scandals, talk about the phony speeches he has made about is monetarism and tell us why the nsa program is so important. we are up against a situation where the people who are considered republicans, conservatives, are depending the programs of a left-of-center president who refuses to defend the program itself. but the country comes first. basisa will use that as a for the program being so essential. privacy versus security. we face an enemy which is overseas and here in our own country. it is an enemy which is willing to carry out a

allows the nsa analysts to collect nearly everything a user does on the internet. that includes personal e-mails, on line chats, web searches and social media activity like facebook chats and private messages. and according to training materials, slides released today. it seems that all an analyst needs to get started is a personal e-mail address or ip address. the guardian x key score collects so much information, though, it can only be stored for three to five days. one nsa report from 2007 estimated that there were 850 billion call events collected. and stored in the nsa data bases. and close to 150 billion internet records, each day. the document says one to two billion records were added according to the guardian. today, the white house said that not all of the information in the guardian piece today is true. >> the intelligence community has explained allegations of widespread unchecked access to information are false. access to tools is limited to only personnel who are required access for their assigned tasks. and there are multiple supervisory checks for those in the system who
in the ongoing debate over the nsa surveillance programs. >> this is, to me, a direct consequence from what we saw in benghazi and the general program that this administration has, which is not being aggressive. >> the good news is that we picked up intelligence. that's what we do. that's what nsa does. >> michael crowley joins us live. michael, thanks for your time here. >> thanks. >> obviously, we didn't hear a lot of some of the partisan bickering we've grown sadly accustomed to. nevertheless, it was still there over the sunday morning programs. >> sure, we've seen this now for a decade. when you have a terrorist event or a major alert, people rush in with their agendas. you know, and it's interesting. i thought rick santorum's criticism in particular was kind of off base. he was saying that the president is timid about calling islamic terrorism -- about using the word terror. rhetorically, he's gone soft on this stuff. the reality is we have waged a really aggressive drone campaign in yemen to the point there's a lot of concern that the drones are doing more damage with public opinion than

of the nsa program? >> of all things on his plate, snowden leaks, the question of what does nsa do and what is surveillance about, politically had a bigger impact than the other various controversy. some argue are politically driven and others more serious than that. this one had the actual impact when you look at the polls it's that's where you see skepticism rising among particularly among folks under the age of 40 who spent a lot of time online and he has been getting a lot of advice, the president has, from outside advisers saying you have to be more public in explaining and if your going to defend and in defending. create more transparency and do these things. you have to get out there and explain these programs because you're taking on water on this topic with a group of voters and a group of americans who are inclined to be supportive of you on other things. you can't afford to lose another piece of the american electorate because you have other things you have to push. >> and this comes after congressional leaders met with him for 90 minutes ten days ago. they told him that there ha
to you. >> about time. thank you very much. >>> let's talk about the nsa. another revelation came out yesterday afternoon and it turns out that they have -- they have released additional information over the past -- since 2008 on things that have gone wrong in the nsa collection. for example, there was a redacted page which is unredacted and classified yesterday that revealed that we have collected 56,000 wholly domestic communications each year. so this is done, nothing was necessarily done with it. nothing was exposed by it. but these were collected and the fisa court judge did not know about it and he rebuked the nsa for doing that and they said they were unintentional errors. >> we have been talking for a while about the nsa, how they're saying trust us, we're not doing anything illegal. the stuff that was declassified yesterday said they didn't break some laws. they violated -- the nsa violated the constitution three times in three years. violated the constitution because they did as brian said go through our e-mails, domestic e-mails, rather than just the foreign stuff. remember
have posted and explanations. so i will talk to you very thatly about the nsa, and is something i have been very involved with, trying to rein in the out-of-control nature of what is going on right now with our surveillance programs, and that is something that i have spent, as you have probably seen from the news, a lot of time doing over the past couple of months. doing himsa has been as has been declassified now, is collecting the phone records of every single person in the united states, regardless of whether you are under suspicion of anything, so, in other words, the nsa has a database, and they actually collect every time you call someone. they collect the call that was made. they tell you which numbers were connected, the duration of the call, and they keep other sorts onwhat they call metadata your calls. they have been doing this for quite some time, but it was thently disclosed, and problem, of course, is they are doing it without any suspicion. it does not matter if you have a connection to a terrorist or not. they decided that they have the authority to gather up everyone's
, because more and more members of congress are concerned over the extent of nsa's spying on us, as we vealed by edward snowden, president obama convened a meeting of republicans to discuss how we can get the proper balance between national security and our right of privacy. and you can look for some legislation which will restrict nsa's spying. we'll tell you all about it right here on current tv. iq will go way up.

latest on the nsa leaker and his life ahead. >> hi, there, mara. edward snowden has, it would appear, settled into his new russian life as quietly as he spent most of his almost six weeks ined is that transit zone inside moscow's airport. so quiet, in fact, that some paparazzi and journalists who were apparently stalking him all that time are calling it anticlimatic. the only information we're actually getting about snowden is coming from his lawyer anatoly kucherena. he found a place to stay, an undisclosed location in moscow. he is keen to learn the russian language and culture and looking, according to kucherena, for a job as a human rights activist. he's also giving up, apparently, on the idea of seeking asylum in any latin american country. that means that he's probably taking the advice of his father, lonnie snowden who told me in an interview we did on thursday from washington, d.c., that if he were his son, he would stay here in russia and make a life of it because it's a strong country, he said, that could resist extreme u.s. pressure to actually to hand his son over to face
confusion before, we now know that president obama isn't a fan of nsa leaker, edward snowden. and he's especially not a fan of russia's decision last week to grant snowden asylum, shielding of from charges of espionage and theft. how much was snowden the final straw in this deteriorating relationship? >> i think he totally was the deteriorating straw. we've had a relationship that's within deteriorating for probably two years now, probably even before that, and i think it was the final sign of how bad the relationship has gotten, that it was so easy for russia to be like, okay, edward, come hang out for us a little while. >> is it really that it was so easy. and folks who watch this show know that i've gotten in trouble for some of my critiques of edward snowden, although not critiques of what he released. in other words, i think the releasing is one thing. i think the seeking asylum is something separate. but if the roles were reversed, we would we have returned an asylum seeker? >> we would never have. and there were instances when the lord of war, even a movie was made with nicola
need to do better in educating our public. >> reporter: the former director of the nsa, said that added oversight could -- >> you need to be careful how many processes you put in there. >> reporter: the leaks seem to have pushed u.s./russia relations to a post cold war low. president obama has canceled a meeting with russian president vladimir putin, originally scheduled for next month. some lawmakers want a stronger gesture. >> mr. putin does not have united states/russia relationships in any priority. that's the way to treat mr. putin. >> reporter: snowden's father continues to defend his son, who he is preparing to visit in russia, after recently securing the papers he needs to travel. some analysts argue that the president shouldn't be tougher on russia but should work on restoring that relationship. especially as the u.s. confronts unrest in syria and egypt. reporting live in washington, i'm danielle leigh. >>> a grim milestone in afghanistan. insurgents killed three servicemen on sunday. that brings the total number of foreign troops killed there to more than 100, 78 american. the

. this on the heels of news from earlier today that after the longest layover in recent airline history, nsa leaker edward snowden was today granted temporary asylum in russia. this means that he's allowed to finally leave the moscow airport terminal that's been his home sing arriving from hong kong on june 23rd. snowden left the airport with temporary refugee at that time tuesday for one year, allowing him to move freely within that country. his exact whereabouts are being kept secret, but needless to say the reaction from many in washington is one anger and disappointment. >> mr. snowden's actions have hurt the ability of our country to protect our citizens. i would hope that president obama would engage president putin on this issue and resolve it in a way that's satisfactory to the american people. >>> joining us is representative jim moran, a democrat from virginia. good afternoon, sir. >> good afternoon. >> your colleague chuck schumer said earlier, quote, russia has stabbed us in the back and each day mr. snowden is allowed to roam free is another twist of the knife. do you share mr. schumer
to the united states. at this point, they are angry at edward snowden for releasing these secrets about the n.s.a. leaks. they don't care about precedent. they want russia to give him back. people in power say we want to give him a fair trial here in america pap lot of us are very skeptical about that. you make a very good example here. i don't think that they look at it in the same vein. >> john lewis came out today and keith ellison, the congressman from minnesota said much the same thing, that edward snowden is walking in the tradition of martin luther king. do you agree or not? >> i think what martin luther king did was write a letter from the birmingham jail, not moscow. he faced his crime when he could have had an opportunity to flee the country. he didn't do that. i think it's a very good thing he went to jail to challenge the congress of the country. he went to jail and wrote from jail. he was trying to challenge the legitimacy of the law by showing it's i will legitimacy in practice. i think edward snowden should come home and face the music. to me, that is what makes sense. if he's righ
and there is no rampant violation of privacy. >> it is interesting, senator lieberman, the president criticized n.s.a. leaker edward snowden as no patriot and he and the administration have been tougher and charged him with violating espionage but in effect, he was saying the leaks had raised legitimate concerns on the part of the american people about whether their privacy is being violated. does that cast the hole snowed were case in a different light? >>guest: i hope not. i believe the programs are critically important to our security almost is no ever presented that n.s.a. surveillance programs have compromised anyone's civil liberties or privacy. this is anxiety that has been aroused by the revelation. i think the president so far has stood by the programs and defended them. obviously, snowen, in my opinion, he is a criminal and he is the reason why the president said what he did on friday. the president was interesting he said in an indirect way he continues to have confidence in the n.s.a. surveillance program but he wants to act a
